Two Months with Ernest

I have now survived two months in the company of Ernest Miller Hemingway. 
He is quiet company during the day but sure likes to party at night. Two months in and this is what I've learned about the hedgehog. 

1. Hedgehogs always have a story to tell. Because they don't talk, they like to write their stories.  

2. Though cute, they are not cuddly. 

3. They are globe trotters. Ernest can go around the world in 8 seconds. 

4. They feel most at home when you mimic their natural environment. Since Ernest is an African Pygmy hedgehog, he likes it hot. 

5. They make it hard to leave for the weekend. Just look at that cute face! 

6. They require more space than you think. Ernest recently moved out of his bookshelf and into a tv stand on his quarter birthday.   

7. They solemnly swear they are up to no good.

8. They love the classics. I tried to get Ernest to read The Mortal Instruments, but he has to finish War and Peace first. 

I love my little Erniekins!
